Herbie,  I had to reply to your post and give you a cyber (((hug)))

 

My eldest daughter is bipolar and we have been through very similar times with her, the awful thing about it is when they are manic they dont want to take their meds because they feel so fantastic, and then of course they come crashing down - sometimes with devastating consequences. All I can say is that my daughter learned from her mistakes (admittedly slowly) and she is now studying Law at Manchester and keeping herself fairly level.

 

The most important thing you can do for them when they are on a down cycle is listen - my daughter feels totally worthless when she is down - tell her how much you love her and that you will always be there for her, but also that she has to learn from the whole cause and effect lesson. I check on a constant basis that my daughter is taking her meds, and also make sure that she is reminded of the consequences if she doesnt, not in a nasty way, Just a gentle nudge or an almost joke, but so she knows that I am involved and behind her/ keeping an eye her.

 

I hope that she feels better soon,  don't ever feel guilty herbie , you cant make her better,  you can just try to help her to heal herself.

 

xxxx

Carrie - I hope it does all sort out, I cannot believe that they will wait until 2 weeks before. How are you wedding plans coming on?

 

Samcalv - at least I am not having to worry about the legal side of things it sounds really complicated! Have you chosen your colours and dress etc yet - sorry if I am waaay behind the times!

 

Kerry - what kind fo a budget do you have for a photographer if you dont mind me asking, I have had emails from loads of them with their price lists which I can share with you if you want.

 

Nicyx - I read one of your earlier posts about looking for your holiday for next year, sounds like a brilliant antidote for the mother of all post holiday blues!

 

Herbie - Only 7 weeks! What dress have you chosen, when are you having your fitting? All very exciting! You must be so proud of your son, what an achievement!

 

Michelle - Mrs Page!! LOL at the husbands comment, yes they are arent they! Looking forwarsd to your low down on the day, hope you get back into Uk time without too much stress!

 

Char - I read back on your posts to find out what you did to your knee, I almost peed, you are totally off your rocker girl. I am sorry that it is still giving you grief though I hope that it heals soon. Good news on the revision turning back to annual leave and wedding planning front though, definitely a silver lining to that particular cloud!

 

I had a very frustrating day regarding my bloomin tour operator, I have already done a whinging post on the main forum, but on the bright side I have chosen my photographer, I think I have chosen my dress and I have chosen MPV for my make up and hair, so all is not lost!

Hi Selina, welcome to the forum! Which hotel have you booked for, you will probably find that in addition to this thread you get a lot of information about how to plan from the thread to do with your hotel as they all seem to do things differently! Iam booked at the Gran caribe Real for Valentines Day next year, we are renewing our vows and having the dream day that we couldn't afford when we first got married!

 

Herbie, cant wait to see the pictures hon, I love seeing wedding dress shots! Are you getting really excited now?

 

 

I had some unbelievably good news regarding my dress hunt yesterday! I have been having a nightmare trying to find a dress that will fit as I have got a big bust and quite a small waist so I am in essence a dressmakers 18/20 on top (highstreet 14/16) but only a dressmakers 10/12 on the bottom (high street 8) which means that we would have had to order the dress in the biggest size and then get it taken in. Sounds simple enough, but the dress that I want is corseted and they cannot take it in more than 2 sizes without ruining the corset. It has been a nightmare.

Anyway i ended up tracking down the design studio of the dress to ask what could be done and I only got to speak to the designer herself!!!! I had a long chat with her ( Lyn Ashworth) and the minute I described my problem she understood, she was intrigued about the fact that after 17 years of marriage and 6 kids we have decided to renew and we got chatting about all sorts, she has only offered to design me a made to measure dress that she will do all the fittings and everything herself!!!!!  I am so  excited about it, she was absolutely lovely understood all of the fears that I have been having about wearing something too girly ( I am after all a 42 year old mum of 6) and reassured me that she will make me look fantastic! 

 

I am ringing her today so that we can sort out the initial consultation, she is going to do my measurements via skype because i am miles away from her and then make up a mock dress, then i will travel to her and she will tweak the mock, then we decide which design and she will make the dress to my exact measurements!

On the up side because I've been signed off sick I get all 15 days of my annual leave, that I took for revision, refunded back to me and i get to sit around all day doing wedding stuff!!

 

 

 

 

 

At least there is an upside to all that chick... phew!!! Good luck at hospital nest week x

Hello everybody and thank you for all being so lovely and friendly.

 

I am from Somerset so down South. 

 

Now the exciting details I am getting married in the Gran Sirenis is anybody else getting married there?

 

I have my first appointment to look at wedding dresses on the 16th July so excited.  I am going for blue for my bridesmaid dresses but one of my bridesmaids is pregnant and not due until October so not sure if I will need to wait to get the dresses as she wont know what size she will need.

 

Can anybody help with what I need to do to legalise my wedding in the UK?  I am paying for the apostille stamp is that all I need to do or is there more I have looked on the internet and it all seems confusing?

 

Selina

bet you cant wait til 16th, not long now :-) Do you have a style in mind? Yes i would prob wait til nearer the time to buy Pregnant dress at least the style can be chosen and its just what size to get at the time x

 

We got the apostille aswell, we then went to our town hall... births deaths marrages etc and they said we dont need to do anything, but i got a number for the head office and they confirmed this for us, as long as we have the marrage cert (& apostille) we are fine.

I still worry as im unsure how there any record of our marrage in the UK but im assured this is OK. You can deposit your cert with the office for a charge to keep it safe, it has to be the original and if you want copies you are better getting them before hand as if you want them after you have deposited it with them they charge you and as far as im aware you cant get your original cert back.

We are just keeping hold of ours.

Have a look at these

Its prob fairly straight forward but im just keeping hold of ours. xxxx

 

Hope this helps x
